Your car’s CV axles are a collection of bearings and cages that are protected by the CV boot. Regular inspections of the boot will ensure it is sealed so that it keeps dirt, sand and grime from getting into the joint and wearing it down. It also keep clean grease in and around the CV joint. When the boot splits the grease spins out of the joint. The lack of grease and the introduction of contaminants like dirt and sand cause the joint to fail at an accelerated rate. Regular inspections and replacement of CV joints will assure that you always have a smooth ride.
With the majority of vehicles on the roads today the need for CV axles has caused the price to come down. Where in the past we would replace split boots or just the CV joint now has become replacement of the entire CV half-shaft. The half-shaft is crucial to propelling front-wheel and many all wheel drive vehicles.
